Lady Bulldogs Finished Their Season with a Win

By Autumn McCoy

Southwood’s Lady Cowboy’s travelled south to take on the Lady Bulldogs Tuesday night. Bryn Danzy, #4 pitcher, led her team to victory from the mound, but that is not where her leadership stopped. Danzy also drove in 5 runners for the Lady Bulldogs with her batting Tuesday night. Coach Smelser told Danzy before the game she needed 8 strikeouts to outdo her 7 from the last time she pitched against Southwood. She had nine for the day! Little did she know, after three of those strikeouts, she would have 250 career strikeouts, and that is just as a Junior!

In the first inning, Lady Bulldogs would score 6 to Southwood’s 2, on a single by Sarah Cormier, #18 first base, a single by Shelby Pickett, #5 short stop, fielder’s choice by Addison Bounds, #6 catcher, and a groundout by Niasia Latson #13 center field. They would never lose their early lead.

Red River’s big inning would be the fourth inning when they put up nine runs. It was driven by an error on a ball put in play by Pickett in which both Pickett and Cormier advanced, a walk by Kyndal Tilley, #2 left field, a triple by Danzy, and a single by Harley Sepulvado, #11 2nd and 3rd base.

The Lady Bulldogs totaled seven hits in the game. Danzy, Pickett, and Sepulvado each had multiple hits for the day. Cormier lead the Lady Bulldogs in stolen bases with three, with the team having a total of 11 bases.

Red River now waits to see if they will make the playoffs after finishing the season with a 12-10 record. The playoff bracket changed this year, and now Red River is in the bracket with 3A and 2A teams, and only the top 26 teams make the cut. In previous years, Red River was only in the playoff bracket with other 2A schools, and 32 teams made it in. The team should find out for sure after all of the results from Wednesday’s games are in.

The team congratulates Brynn for her 250th career strikeout after the game Tuesday night against Southwood.
